MORT WALKER
He signs a First Day Cover celebrating the American Folklore Series, Grandma Moses.
First Day Cover signed: "Mort/Walker", 6½x3½. FDC honoring the American Folklore Series, Grandma Moses Painter, 6-cent Grandma Moses stamp affixed, postmarked Washington, D. C., May 1, 1969, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Cartoonist Mort Walker (born in 1923) sold his first cartoon at the age of 12, was regularly contributing cartoons to magazines by age 14 and was the comic strip artist for a daily metropolitan newspaper when he was 15. In 1950, he introduced Beetle Bailey, who first came to life as a college cut-up before accidentally stumbling onto an Army recruiting post in 1951, resulting in soaring popularity. "Beetle Bailey", which first appeared in 50 newspapers, was picked up by King Features in 1950 and is now seen in 1,800 newspapers, making it the third most widely distributed comic strip. Beetle and his army buddies also appear in 92 compilations of the strip. Walker is also the co-creator, with Dik Browne of "Hi and Lois" (1954), a spin-off of "Beetle Bailey" (Lois is Beetle's sister), and a number of other comic strips. He was named Cartoonist of the Year in 1953 and has won numerous other awards for his work. Postmark lightly faded. Fine condition.
